On November 5th, 2022, 2 YG members and 3 exchange students met at Changgyeonggung at 5pm. In Changgyeonggung, we roamed around and took pictures. We could see traditional Korean buildings.

On November 14th 2021, 4 YG members and 3 exchange students visited Seoul Botanic park. We met at the front gate of Yonsei University at 10:00 am and headed to the Botanic garden by subway. After about 30 minutes, we arrived at the Botanic garden. The weather was warm – it was perfect autumn weather! The way from the subway station to the main gate of the Botanic garden was full of nature and green.
We walked around various spots within the botanic park and as we entered the greenhouse, or the glasshouse, everyone started to take off their heavy coats as it was hot inside the glasshouse. While walking around the park, exchange students and YG members had 1:1 conversation, talking about school life, their experiences in Korea, and shared different cultural elements. It was interesting to talk about each country’s national flower and tree within the botanic park.
Around lunch time, we finished looking around the park and headed over to our lunch place. We had pork cutlet for lunch. All of us ordered different menu and exchange students seemed surprised at the size of the pork cutlet. We had rather happy lunch as we were able to recharge energy after hour and a half long walk around the park.
The whole experience was perfect thanks to the weather. Red and golden autumn leaves were beautiful and the wind was blowing swiftly, making our Sunday afternoon perfect! It was so much fun and we hope everyone made unforgettable memories together.
